It is an outlet for me. I have learned when you enjoy something you are more apt to continue with it. The same is true for anything. The job you hold, the hobbies we pursue, the exercise you do etc.
Let's think about that --- think about all the books on healthy living, diets, and infomercials out there vying for our attention. Let's just say you got serious about your health and you decided to change the way your eating or the way you workout CONSISTENTLY. Not for a week, a month -- but for a lot longer. (If you Google how long it takes for a habit to set in, you will find out no one really knows.) So lets say, for example my blog -- I just kept going, and going and going -- I did not think about the days because I enjoyed it so much. So therein lies the solution -- I believe you must enjoy it in order for it to be a CONSISTENT pattern in your life.

I told myself this was the exercise I had to do to actually see significant changes with my body. Not true. I did not love to run. It was not something I wanted to do long term. Hence, I did not stick with it! I found out that I enjoyed walking a lot better. It was better on my knees and I could do it at a fast pace or moderate pace and still see results with my body.
So find things that you can do on a CONSISTENT basis and make sure it's things you are willing to stick with!
Until next time...
